Traveling with Edibles

Written by Stacey


Let's face it. One of the great aspects of marijuana is its ability to be cooked into edibles. Whether you're talking about the classic brownie or one of the many new offerings available at dispensaries around town, there's really no limit to the kind of edibles you can purchase in Las Vegas. But how can you travel with them? Can you just walk around town with edibles in Vegas without any issue? Can you plop down and eat them whenever and wherever you are? Because you're not actually smoking anything there has to be different rules here than with just toking up, right? Well we've got all the answer for you here, so when it comes to how to travel with weed and where is cannabis legal in Vegas, you've come to the right spot.

Buying Edibles

When looking at how to find weed in a new town, you shouldn't have problems locating dispensaries in Vegas. There's one every few blocks.

Consuming in Public

So here really is the big question everyone has. Can you eat edibles in public? Well, the short answer to this is no, you can't. You are not allowed to openly use marijuana anywhere in public. This goes for walking down the strip, in hotels, in the casinos and anywhere else. It's all off limits. You are allowed to partake in marijuana, including edibles, on private property (such as an AirBNB). So, legally, no, you can't just pull out that brownie or gummies you purchased from the store and start mowing down as you walk.

But It's Not Like You'll Get Caught, Right?

Of course, the second part to this question and answer is will anyone really know? Unlike pulling out a joint and lighting up, many of the edibles look exactly like regular snacks. In fact, take the label off and nobody will ever know. So, in this way, while not legal, it is much, much easier to get away with it. But, again, should you still do it? Is there anything different between eating an edible in your AirBNB and while out on the strip? Realistically, there isn't all that much that is different. But in the eyes of the law, it is still illegal. That's because marijuana laws and alcohol laws are different. More likely than not, at some point in time these laws will change and allows you to eat edibles openly, but for now, you can't. And while yes, it is totally easier to get away with eating it in public, you'll still be charged if you are caught eating it.

Traveling With Edibles

Traveling with edibles is similar to traveling with marijuana. You can have edibles on you as you travel. However, again, and we can't stress this enough, you can't openly consume it in public. You may think you're being sneaky, but police are trained to spot this. If you are arrested for using edibles in public you can be charged with a fine that may reach $1,000. That's a pretty hefty fee. So be smart about it.

Beyond walking around with your edibles (after all, you just purchased edibles, so you need to be able to transport it), you can have it in your car as well. However, if you drove into Las Vegas, especially from other states that do not have legalized marijuana laws (such as Arizona, where only medical marijuana is allowed currently), if you are pulled over with edibles you purchased in Las Vegas, you will be charged the state laws you are currently in. Also, do not even try to bring edibles with you on a plane. It is best to just buy what you can use while in town and use everything up. Traveling with it outside of Nevada just makes for possible headaches and legal problems later on.

If you're coming to Las Vegas, you're going to want to enjoy yourself with the new Nevada pot legalization. Of course, one of the many ways you can enjoy yourself is with the aid of edibles. As long as you follow these rules you should be completely good to go. So, whether you're looking at heading out to Las Vegas or you're just in the early stages of making plans, just remember, we've got all sorts of fantastic activities for you to take advantage of. All you need to do is give us a call and we'll help connect you not only with the legalization of weed in Nevada, but finding the top escorts to enjoy the pot with.
